Deploying an Open Source DAM in SAAS Mode

Conference, 11.10 - 12.10

With development teams in The Netherlands and Kiev and Operations people in Belgium, building this platform was a nice exercise in distributed devops adoption.

This talk will share our experiences with you, from teaching developers to being taught by developers.

From automated Drupal deployments and continuous integration to Infrastructure as Code. From Success to Failure and back... including theobvious DNS problems.

It took us about a year to go from concept to actual continuous delivery, a year in which we learned a lot, automated a lot and measured a lot. A year in which we build and rebuild dashboards, learned about the behaviour of our platform, fought with ffmpeg, in which we destroyed and created full new platforms (in approx 4 hours) and used mcollective to trigger drush commands.

A year in which we learned about Culture, Automation, Metrics and now we want to Share.
